Something We Have to Do

The flurry of activity from Thanksgiving to New Years is over. And now it’s time to get back to the routine of real life. But real life is never routine for one very simple reason – God is passionately in love with us. This love is the most powerful force in the universe, and only a fraction of it changes everything in our lives. But do we let it? This is an essential question because God shares this unconditional, second-chance, transforming, hope-inducing, eternal love so it will shape us to live the kind of life God has created us to experience. Which means there is something we have to do – give ourselves to the love God has so freely given us. Not just when we understand it. Not only in certain areas of our lives. And not merely when we feel like it. But in every moment in every circumstance with everything we’ve got.
